Pinocchio villa for sale at £8.7million - Telegraph

See on Scoop.it - Italian Properties - Italiaans Onroerend Goed

The Florence villa that inspired Pinocchio author Carlo Collodi is for sale.

Want to buy the villa that inspired the author of Pinocchio? It will set you back £8.7million.

The Villa di Colonnata, in a suburb of Florence called Sesto Fiorentino, is a world away from the humble workshop where the carpenter Geppetto’s marionette is born in the book by Carlo Collodi. The 3,000-square-metre (32,000 square feet) mansion has seven acres of garden, including a lawn known as the ‘Field of Miracles’, where a gardener famously found a hoard of coins in the 19th century – a tale that was included in ‘The Adventures of Pinocchio’. The Field of Miracles appears in Pinocchio as the place where a sly fox and cat persuade the gullible Pinocchio to bury his money, telling him that it will grow and multiply.

Things to Know If You’re Going to Italy | Italian Unification

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

The Italian unification was the political and social movement, known as Risorgimento, meaning the Resurgence, that agglomerated different states of the Italian peninsula into the single state of the Kingdom of Italy in the 19th century, overcoming 1300 years of disunity. The process began in 1815 with the Congress of Vienna and the end of Napoleonic rule, and ended in 1870 with the Capture of Rome. Some of the terre irredente did not, however, join the Kingdom of Italy until after World War I with the Treaty of Saint-Germain. Some nationalists see the Armistice of Villa Giusti as the end of unification.

Festamore Weddings, voor een bijzondere, persoonlijke bruiloft in Italië - Sposarsi d'Italia

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Italië staat voor enorme passie, liefde, bijzonder landschap, cultuur, heerlijk eten, zalige wijnen en niet te vergeten het heerlijke klimaat! Kort gezegd: La bella vita in Italia!

Een bruiloft in Italië organiseren is niet zo eenvoudig als dat het lijkt. Er komt veel bij kijken op wettelijk gebied en voor het logistieke deel is kennis van de regio nodig. Ook is de werkhouding in Italië heel anders dan wij gewend zijn. Wij noemen het wel eens gekscherend: de “dopo domani cultuur”: wat vandaag niet lukt, komt (over)morgen wel.

Door onze ervaring kennen wij de Italiaanse trouwmarkt, locaties en leveranciers goed. En nog steeds breiden we dit uit door de meest uiteenlopende bruiloften die we daar organiseren. Want of het nu om een intieme bruiloft gaat met 20 gasten of een met 100, wij gaan tot het uiterste om deze neer te zetten zoals jullie als bruidspaar het voor ogen hebben. Wij vertalen jullie wensen naar een daadwerkelijke huwelijksdag!

Omdat wij bruiloften het meest persoonlijke vinden wat 2 personen kunnen aan gaan, organiseren wij dit ook op dezelfde wijze: persoonlijk! Wij bieden geen vaste pakketjes aan, we plannen jullie bruiloft geheel op maat! Of jullie het nou willen invullen met Nederlandse of Italiaanse tradities, óf een mix hiervan, wij zorgen ervoor dat het van A-Z klopt!

Si, ho tanta voglia di sposarmi in Italia, organizzato da FestAmore Weddings!

Le Marche in da Kitchen

See on Scoop.it - La Cucina Italiana - De Italiaanse Keuken - The Italian Kitchen

If you didn’t get it I am from Le Marche: a region in the central part of Italy, an almost mystical territory, a peaceful area which you would never hear on the news: a proper middle-earth. In many ways it is the mirror image of its more internationally renowned neighbour Tuscany especially for its cuisine and landscape; nevertheless it has remained an hidden jewel, rustic and a bit backward. I am totally in love with my region: its gentle hills that always welcome me home like a mother’s arms, its ploughed fields that always remind me of the diligence of my people, and its coastal cliffs severe like a father and haughty like the fashionable girls from our area.

Our cuisine is a mix between the sophisticated delicacies of northern Italy combined with the more rustic and almost craggy southern peasant food, which creates a disparate magnificent culinary heritage; from meat to fish dishes, from liver salami to the finest truffle, from vincisgrassi (a local type of lasagne) to brodetto (a very particular fish soup) each of which will be presented with its own personal and family story.

Confusion over Venice cruise ship ban - Telegraph

See on Scoop.it - La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws

News that major changes are to come into force for cruise ships sailing in and out of Venice from next year has left big question marks over how the developments will affect cruise holidays.

The number of cruise ships exceeding 40,000 tonnes and sailing in the Giudecca Canal – for those classic Venice-at-your-feet views – will be reduced by 20 per cent from January 2014, while those exceeding 96,000 tonnes will be banned entirely from crossing the canal from November 2014, Italian media reported this week.
